Man angry over socks attacks 2 with sword in Hudson, deputies say

HUDSON, Fla. (WFLA) - A Hudson man is behind bars after deputies say he attacked two people with a sword because he was angry over socks.

Pasco deputies were called to a home on Lauderdale Street Tuesday afternoon for the incident.

According to an arrest report, 47-year-old Brandon McCray started arguing with people inside his home and accused several of them of stealing his socks. The report states McCray threatened the people in the home, saying he would be back and they would be sorry.

Deputies say McCray then left the home and returned with a ninja sword, which he used to injure two people.

One woman, identified as the suspect's ex-girlfriend, suffered a large and significant cut on her leg from the sword, according to the arrest report.

Deputies say McCray also swung the sword at a man's head and neck. That victim suffered injuries to his hands and arms. The arrest report states the man also nearly lost several of his fingers.

McCray left the home after the attack and was taken into custody at a neighbor's house. He is facing charges of domestic aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and attempted murder.

Both victims were taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point and are expected to be okay.
